Hi guys,

 

Last week we kept the ustream guys tuned in for over 2 hours. This week we started recording late and had a pre-show visit from Chris Lux, thanks Chris. And we had you ustreamers for an other long night. A big THANK YOU for hanging in and your devotion to listen to us talk about the WHS news and our opinions.

 

Here are a few links,

We were also lucky to get 5 licenses for a long time favorite WHS addin called Light's Out.

We gave 2 licenses to a couple ustreams listeners, Tinkerguy and rennypp.

 

That leaves us 3 more to give here in the forums. So let us know if your interested it going long term with Light's Out's and we will pick 3 winners.

Reply in this thread to be eligible for the remaining three licenses of Lights Out. The two winners from the live stream already have theirs! I'll close the thread right before the next live show and we will announce the new winners on the stream. Good luck!

I think it's great you're getting some support from vendors. I have no particular interest in LightsOut, but it's still nice of him to provide the licenses.

Knock on wood, but I plan to run my EX495 into the ground. I doubt I'll be upgrading any time soon. $600 + the price of the extra drives means I have to get 5 years out of this box, at least. As I say, knock on wood...

 

You guys are too funny about the "D" word. Drobo, Drobo, Drobo... There, I said it too. :) If I could afford one, and I don't mean the USB model but something faster, I'd probably have one.

 

Funny that you talked about Lights Out. I had been thinking recently about splurging for it. The built in sleep function on the EX495 works about half the time. I think it gets confused when I wake it manually, in that thereafter it stops working.

I haven't been keeping up with the podcasts ever since my Zune got stolen, and work has been keeping me from actively participating in the forums :(

 

I'd love to get a Light's Out license, though - count me in! :)

Can Lights Out wake a computer for backup then put it back to sleep afterwards? If it can, then I would be interested.

That's not good. Who would steal a fellas zune anyhow?

What mobile phone are you using? We are now on Stitcher Radio which is available on tons of mobile devices. http://www.stitcher.com/

I was pretty sure Windows Home Sever did that already, at least 2011 does since it's a question it asks during the setup of the connector software on a computer.

Hey guys, Thanks for keeping it going with the vendors and the reviews. I can spend hours reading on the net and still not quite get a good feel for some of the add-ins and products you guys take on in here, the show is always enjoyable!

 

Lets see.... I've been using perfect disk for my V1 WHS for several years and am quite happy with it, but you guys brought up a great point with the new "drive extenders" add-ins for 2011; How well will PD 12 work with these new "DE options". I am not comfortable being the test suject with my data. I'd like to see more info on this.

 

Lights out is one add in I've not tried for a while as in i had lots of issues last time i tried it and later found out it was not that add-in but several others(I like to try add-ins). I have been going through my PC's and working on silencing them / saving energy for the last year and the one Rig I have not done anything with is my WHS which is a custom box. Point is I would be interested in one of prizes, so please put me in the hat!

 

PS. I do use HomeGroup for my Win7 boxes, but just because it is there, I prefer the server.

 

Cheers

Both versions of WHS ask if you want the server to wake up the clients to back them up, but I haven't seen anything that says it will put them to sleep again. Maybe I'm missing something? I haven't stayed up to see if they do go to sleep again but, if it doesn't say right out that it does, then I tend to think it doesn't, so I'm hoping someone knows for sure.
